So then pornography would be OK to upload to the movies section ?

From the terms page:

"Because the content of the Collections comes from around the world and from many different sectors, the Collections may contain information that might be deemed offensive, disturbing, pornographic, racist, sexist, bizarre, misleading, fraudulent, or otherwise objectionable. The Archive does not endorse or sponsor any content in the Collections, nor does it guarantee or warrant that the content available in the Collections is accurate, complete, noninfringing, or legally accessible in your jurisdiction, and you agree that you are solely responsible for abiding by all laws and regulations that may be applicable to the viewing of the content."

Forum: etree Subject: Re: explicit lyrics or images under an adult section?

ok that answers that.. I wad just curious.. thanks

one last thing, now if something like this happens and adult material starts to end up on the archive. Even if its music that has suggested lyrics. Has there been any thought as to the need to section it off from people who are under 18?

This might sound silly to some but it could be an issue. I'm not saying it is right or wrong but in my mind a disclaimer might not cover it if there were movies for example that were explicit in some way or another.

agian I'm just trying to chat about this.. the reason i say this is because I am known to get some longs thread going on boards of all kinds and I dont want to see be seen to be attacking anyone just trying to provoke some good thoughts and such.

If you ever visit a site that has content thats supposed to be viewed by 18+ viewers, the disclaimer is not only that, but its an agreement. If you enter you are agreeing that you are of age and do not mind viewing said content. to this effect, the disclaimer on the archive is the same way, and if you read it it states and you agree that you are solely responsible for abiding by all laws and regulations that may be applicable to the viewing of the content. Pretty much, if you are viewing porn on the archive, and youre legaly underaged to do so, thats on your ass and not the archives.
